    This is the third copy of this book I have purchased. My daughter has one and refuses to relinquish it; I don't blame her. I still have my original copy, a first edition, but it is fairly worn out and holds a place of rev

    This is truly the WORST Pritchett book I have ever read. I don’t really adore the Ridcully/suitcase series, but there are still funny bits. But this book is just AWFUL. Just boring and tedious and the characters are uninteresting, and predictable. My son had to read this for a class—when I saw it was Pritchett, I assured him with great confidence he was going to love it. He hated it. When he finished, I read it, thin

    Excellent book! I have a separate copy I keep for lending. I love this book. It's very well written and very tongue in cheek. Two wonderful authors, and the cover is beautiful.

    ALL THE FOOTNOTES ARE AT THE END which eliminates half the humor. This is one where only the book will do.

    Like most fans of his works, I have felt the pain of a Pratchett shaped hole in my reading life ever since his death. The gift of a new novel was a yearly gift I’d come to rely on, and now it’s gone for good. We shall miss it.

    But on the urgings of a friend, I have now, and for the first time, read one of the no

    I read this book when it first came out bought this to replace the black covered original paperback that got lost over multiple house moves. Perhaps it's ended up in Aziriphale's bookshop. What can I say? It's still a great, light hearted take on Armageddon and the Eternal Battle Between Good and Evil. I'm still at a loss why this has never made it to the screen, but I guess it means we can all keep a cast of characters in our heads.

    Plans for the apocalypse are well under way and – according to the most accurate guide to the future in existence: the Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch (written in 1655) – the world will end next Saturday. just after tea.
    Things really do look dire. Except, someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist. And the angel and demon who have been keeping an eye on things since mankind were evicted from Eden

    If you’re a fan of either Messrs. Pratchett or Gaiman you’ll have heard of and probably read this book. If all this is new to you then oh

    Good Omens , by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman, is one of those books that once read you will always find yourself sooner or later going back to have another read of it. Technically speaking this is a re read that I'm writing my review on but you know what? This is absolutely one of my favourite stories ever.

    A short summary? An angel and a demon team up to try to stop the Apocalypse from happening when the Anti Christ reaches the c

Good Omens

Med with awkwardly antiuated instructions and stick pins Atlantis is rising frogs are falling tempers are flaring Right Everything appears to be going according to Divine PlanExcept that a somewhat fussy angel and a fast living demon each of whom has lived among Earth's mortals for many millennia and has grown rather fond of the lifestyle are not particularly looking forward to the coming Rapture If Crowley and Aziraphale are going to stop it from happening they've got to find and kill the Antichrist which is a shame. ALL THE FOOTNOTES ARE AT THE END which eliminates half the humor This is one where only the book will do

As he's a really nice kid There's just one glitch someone seems to have misplaced him First published in 1990 Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett's brilliantly dark and screamingly funny take on humankind's final judgment is back and just in time in a new hardcover edition which includes an introduction by the authors comments by each about the other and answers to some still burning uestions about their wildly popular collaborative effort that the devout and the damned alike will surely cherish until the end of all thing. Like most fans of his works I have felt the pain of a Pratchett shaped hole in my reading life ever since his death The gift of a new novel was a yearly gift I d come to rely on and now it s gone for good We shall miss itBut on the urgings of a friend I have now and for the first time read one of the novels that he wrote in collaboration with another writer I d always resisted that inclination in the past driven by a sense that I wanted my Terry Pratchett unadulterated or not at all Ask a Scotsman what the best thing is to add to a whisky and he ll tell you another whisky Nothing mixes better with Pratchett than another PratchettAfter iGood Omensi I ve had to revise that view It isn t a Pratchett novel It isn t set on the Discworld for instance but on Earth Nonetheless behind the wit that hums through the book some of it no doubt down to the co author Neil Gaiman there are occasional gleams of pure Pratchett in the ageing dominatrix for instance who is essentially motherly and decorates her boudoir of sin with fluffy toys or the suggestion that nothing Hell could come up with as a torment would rival what mankind can dream up on its ownThe theme is a parody of the film iOmeni A son has been born to Satan His agents notably the demon Crowley who is coordinating the whole venture have arranged that an American diplomat s wife will give birth that very night to a son in an obscure hospital in the English countryside which happens to be staffed by nuns from a Satanist order This will allow a switch to be performed leading to the devil s child being brought up in a family which will provide him with the opportunity to plunge the world into the chaos that leads to ArmageddonAlas however even infernal agents like humans are inclined to err The switch is mishandled So eleven years later as the forces of hell and those of heaven prepare to fight their last battle to the destruction of the Earth and the human species nothing goes to planWhich isn t such a bad thing for Crowley and his opposite number the angel Aziraphale The two of them have grown used to life on earth and have come to enjoy it No antiue bookshops No elegant cocktail bars I leave it to you to decide which is to the taste of which of these two The prospect leaves them both distraught and having come close to being friends down the centuries through which they have competed with each other they collaborate to see if they can find a way of preventing Armageddon while avoiding the likely retribution of their respective heavenly and infernal hierarchiesThrow into the mix a modern witch who happens to be a descendant of Agnes Nutter author of some nice and accurate prophecies which are indeed astonishingly accurate though sadly not always comprehensible until after the events have happened and then include a misfit of a young man who becomes a witchfinder and you have all the ingredients for a rollicking funny and engaging tale Since the ending is both satisfying and pointed with the destruction of an object we might have expected to be treated as sacred the novel has everything one could hope for to amuse and entertainWell worth it if you re at a loose end and want some entertainment written with talent And like me you re regretting the loss of Terry Pratchett Enhanced far from diminished by Neil Gaiman

There is a distinct hint of Armageddon in the air According to The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter Witch recorded thankfully in 1655 before she blew up her entire village and all its inhabitants who had gathered to watch her burn the world will end on a Saturday Next Saturday in fact So the armies of Good and Evil are amassing the Four Bikers of the Apocalypse are revving up their mighty hogs and hitting the road and the world's last two remaining witch finders are getting ready to fight the good fight ar. This is my 3rd Neil Gainman book American Gods was amazing Anansi Boys was find but Good Omens let me down Here s the thing the witticisms and jokes you try to cram in a book the likely you are by the law of probability that most of them will be duds You are much likely to succeed if you keep the jokes to a minimum but make sure those few are really good As others said this book tries way too hard to be funny Don t write a book with the declared intention of it being hilarious or the funniest book you ll ever read because you only raise expectations to an unrealistic level Much better to write it as a very good story and the funny parts will be the icing on the cakeThe only characters I enjoyed were the angel and the demon who happen to be unlikely buddies and their interaction is usually entertaining The 4 bikers of the Apocalypse are also a fresh take on the classic horsemen Other than that I really didn t care much about anyone else with some of the other characters the witch hunters in particular being right down obnoxious I also couldn t bring myself to care about the end of the world and if you can t make me care even a little bit about the most catastrophic event possible you know you didn t do it right In fact when I start hoping the end does come and wipes out these obnoxious people you probably missed the mark by a long shotI think I ll take a break from Gainman for a bit since it seems every book I read is worse than the previous
